DSS stops June 12 rally in Ibadan, arrests three

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Saturday dismissed reports that its operatives had killed Mohammed Jamil Guddare, the man who breached security cordon to shake hands with President Muhammadu Buhari in Kebbi State on Thursday.

The DSS in a statement issued by its Spokesman, Peter Afunanya, described the reports of the killing as false.

Afunanya said: “The DSS wishes to dismiss reports making the rounds that presidential details killed the intruder that tried to break the security cordon to attack the President and Commander-in-Chief, Muhammadu Buhari, at Argungu, Kebbi State.

According to the DSS spokesman, the operatives could not have killed the man whom it described as “an overzealous enthusiast of the President.”

He added: “The Service wishes to clarify the issue as follows:

One Mohammed Jammil Guddare made overzealous but futile attempt to have an unauthorised handshake with the President thus breaching security protocols.

He was stopped by Security details and arrested for thorough investigation.

Preliminary investigation revealed that he is not a hostile person but an overzealous enthusiast of the President.

“The Service has reviewed the video of the incident and is taking measures against its personnel found to have been negligent in their duties.”
